Bear Cole Knows How to Make Events Successful

My name is Bear Cole.  I am a Technology Professional with experience in I.T. Hosting and Server Administration, and Web Design and Marketing. I currently work for Pier 2 Marketing as a Trainer/ I.T. and Customer Service Manager.

I hold degrees in Audio Engineering and Studio Recording, and Web & Graphic Design. I also have education and experience in Web Development and I.T. I have been a DJ for over 2 decades, toured as a Solo Musician, Member of Several Groups and Bands, and as an Audio Tech and Roadie. My number one asset is my entrepreneurial spirit and diversity of skill. I never stop learning and pushing myself to be more well rounded.

Much of my experience is in Management, Internet & Production Technology, and Training. I have Managerial experience in multiple realms. I currently manage a team of customer support specialists, and work to make sure we provide amazing support for our clients and partners.  I was a Supervisor and Lead for GoDaddy hosting technology and customer service teams for years.  I also Managed a full team of Event Professionals and DJ’s planning concerts, festivals, and weddings for PeaksPro Event Services. I was also the Head of the Audio Department for LMG Inc. in their Phoenix office. In these roles I was responsible for the Management and Training of hundreds of team members!

I am also a DJMusicianEntertainment Consultant, and Audio Engineer from Flagstaff, Arizona.  I am the Wedding &  Events Manager and Head DJ for 1st Drop Entertainment. We provide Professional Level DJ, Audio. Lighting, and Photo Booth services for Weddings, School Functions, Corporate Events, and Company Parties. When I’m not helping organize events you can catch me behind the tables playing music.

I also own an Entertainment company called 1st Drop Entertainment. We help promote, throw, book, and even consult for bands, DJs, musicians, comedians, venues, and bars and restaurants. We take care of the Entertainment side of things, so you can focus on what you are good at.

My Sites


I Love to Learn and Take on a Challenge

I Utilize the Web

I have years of experience working in multiple facets of web technology. As a Web Professional I help Businesses, Artists, and Individuals use the internet to succeed. I design Web Sites and Graphics. I also have a deep understanding of Hosting, DNS, SSL Certificates, SSO, and Base Level Coding Skills. WordPress is my weapon of choice.


I Am A Leader

Whether it is leading a team of employees as a Team Lead, Supervisor, Manager, or even a group of hikers as a guide, I am a leader. I don’t just say that either. I have years of experience and training in Leadership strategies and fundamentals.This includes training I received as a member of the Arizona State University Leardership Scholarship Program.  I have held numerous positions at different companies in the role of Management and Leadership. I am humbled and motivated when I know the success of others depends on me.

I currently manage a team of DJs, Photographers, and Event Professionals as the Wedding & Events Manager and Head DJ for Peaks Pro Event Services.


I Make Events Successful

Growing up in The Grand Canyon National Park influenced me in many ways. It gave me a very unique world view, but also a unique vision of music and sound. How is this? By putting me in touch with the music and ceremonies of multiple Native American tribes, and visitors from every corner of the globe on a daily basis.

I have over 2 decades of experience as a Professional DJ, producer, and musician. This means I have toured, held residencies, produced, and worked Weddings, School Functions, and Corporate Events. I am an Audio Engineer and DJ.

I don’t consider myself a Mobile DJ. As a matter of fact I don’t consider myself to be a DJ at all. I am a Professional Record Selector with a deep understanding and passion for music, and an understanding of how to make some of the most important events in people’s lives successful and full of great memories.

I Create

I love to Create. I don’t sit around and talk about it, I do it. I am not the type to let an idea waste away. I have released over 20 musical albums, and produced many more. I have published books and poetry. I have also published my photography. I write and make videos for my own Outdoor Adventure Site Network. I am currently writing my first full length book, and working on a Full Length Documentary and Corresponding Book. You know, just something to fill up all the spare time I have.
